Focuser upgrades?

Hi all,
I have one of these: SkyWatcher 10" collapsible Goto dob

It has what I think is a standard 2" r&p focuser. No idea on draw tube travel though.

I'd like to change this for a dual speed focuser for less frustration on a nights viewing.

I've done a bit of reading and have seen prices from $100 to $1000

So, what is the benefit of a Crayford vs what I have?
I understand Crayford may need locking screw if using a camera?

Will any focuser fit? Or do I need to match specific focal points etc?

Looking to spend about $200-400 at most on an upgrade.
Any suggestions would be great.

Of course any general advice/coments etc, happily received.

Cheers.
Drew
